WHO WE ARE
Philoi Global responds to the humanitarian gaps of persecuted minorities through relief, relocation, and resettlement.
In many parts of the world, Christians are forcibly displaced from their homeland due to persecution. Refugees – especially persecuted minorities, often encounter countless challenges in their search for safety. Globally, their difficulties are seldom known or noticed.
Through meaningful collaboration with local partners, Philoi equips displaced & persecuted minorities with durable solutions for relief by meeting their survival needs. When they move to a neighbouring country for safety, Philoi provides relocation support. If safety is not possible within the region, we assist them to resettle in a safer country.
Through global advocacy, we seek to amplify the voices of our friends (φίλοι), who’s struggles are ‘little-known’.
In Greek, ‘Philoi’ means ‘friends’ (φίλοι). In John 15:14, Jesus said: ‘You are my friends (φίλοι) if you do what I command.’ In the Ancient Hellenistic Kingdom, it was a title meaning the ‘royal friends’ of a king. Just as friends journey together, Philoi journeys with the forcibly displaced in their courageous search for safety.

Connecting and networking is the key to success. The main hurdle for connecting is our time constraints - not knowing where, when, or who to network with. Many try to reinvent responses alone and fail in isolation. Philoi is committed to connecting with existing networks and is willing to facilitate new networks to find holistic solutions.
Only through collaboration across churches, humanitarian and mission agencies, can we tackle the challenges faced by disadvantaged and displaced communities. Philoi Global supports collaboration to partner effectively and strategically by building capacity and training.
Philoi consults with emerging initiatives to support them in programme design, strategy planning, implementation and evaluation.
Philoi believes that Christian engagement in responding to the needs of the vulnerable communities and the forcibly displaced requires creative thinking and innovative solutions. We believe in innovations at the grass-root level to bring social change and solutions.
